player name color in The Cast list
I have five players in my game, but only two have blue names in The Cast list. The other three names are white. And the one player who has already created a character and started their adventure does NOT have a blue name in The Cast list. Their name is white in The Cast list. What does that mean?

The different colors mean that some players have written a character description and others have not.  You can click on the names to go straight to that player's character description from the cast list if they've written one.  If they haven't put anything in there, then the name won't be clickable and a different color.

The funny thing is that the two blue names have not written a character description, while the one player who has written one has their name in white and the name is not clickable.

It may actually have to do with whether they have a character portrait selected.

Okay, thanks. It's not a big deal, I was just curious.

In reply to Gaffer (msg # 4):

Actually, no it isn't.  The name changes colour because it is converted into a link to the Character Description (if one exists).  The portrait has nothing to do with it.

As for why it isn't working properly in this case...  No idea.  Sometimes it can glitch if a player writes a description, and then deletes it.  Or if they try to post a description but it doesn't go through for some reason (for example: if the user forgets to update the page to upload the description, and just navigates away from it instead).
